Southern Branch Volunteer Opportunities

Senior Food Distribution/Cumberland County

We are looking for volunteers in the Cumberland County area who are able to help distribute government-subsidized commodities to low-income senior citizens on the third Tuesday of every month. Volunteers need their own transportation and must be able to help FoodBank associates load and deliver groceries in Millville. If you’re able to help with this distribution, please contact Maria Bocelle, Volunteer Coordinator, at mbocelle@cfbnj.org or 609-383-8843 ext. 114.
